Movement-Related Cortical Potentials and Event-Related Potentials

Show Summary Details

Preview

Special EEG averaging techniques may be used to study the cortical processes underlying movement and cognition. Movement-related potentials and contingent negative variation are observed before a voluntary movement occurs. The P300 and other event-related potentials provide electrophysiologic correlates of perception and cognition.
